I haven't done anything yet but I think I might give word or publisher a bash as it would be easy to add photos and scanned in bits. 

I think it would be useful to have a place where I can see what I've done, where and when then document the results.

)potted on and now in the green house to overwinter. The Achillea Cassis look really leggy. Do they die back naturally or should I cut them back or leave them alone? The catmint has gone a bit mad and the Geum are quite big too. Also do we continue to water the plants in the greenhouse other than just not letting them dry right out?

I planted this sedum earlier in the summer but it's looking a bit sick. Any ideas what could be wrong?

My runner beans(scarlet emporer) have gone a bit too stringy now and not very nice to eat.. The earlier ones were lovely. Do I leave them to die off then plant the seeds for another plant next year?
